Update: Stopped in a Verizon store today and talked with the sales guy about this plan. Bottom line, it is really poor as the cost is almost equal to the share everything plan.
65+ 2 lines $60 (450 minutes shared) 2 data @2GB $60 (data is not shared on this plan) 2 text 1000 units $20 Total, before fees $140.00
shared 2 smart phones
2 phones $80.00 (unlimited text & talk ) 2 GB shared data $60 (shared between 2 phones) Total $140.00
So for the same price I can get slightly less data but a lot more talking time.
What is the point of the 65 plus if you have a smart phone???
Initially I was excited as I ass/um/ed the 65 plus allowed sharing data between lines, but that is not the case.
And to confirm what others have said, any phone is available with a subsidy on the 65 plus and "friends + family" does not apply unless you have a 1400 minute plan. I am not sure the relevance of the Friends + Family anymore as there does not seem to be a plan offering that has 1400 minutes. They are either 450 minutes or unlimited.
Straight Talk with Google/LG Nexus 4 is sounding really good right now. Sweet phone, $90/month for both of us.
